7 steps to p**s off a consultant

Step 1: Create a project with an incredible tight deadline and hire him as a subcontractor
Step 2: make sure access to internal resources is limited below agreed threshold
Step 3: let him re-engineer an application with hidden gems of bad engineering
Step 4: ask him to work weekends and public holidays clocking in >100h in 8 days
Step 5: don't communicate management decisions in time  
Step 6: tell him that the customer likes the code he creates
Step 7: tell him, that you won't compensate for extra effort

But maybe I wake up, Friday the 13th is gone and everything is a bad dream.
